The multifaceted relationship between municipalities and universities, 2016-2017

This project was funded by Kunnallisalan Kehittämissäätiö.

In this project we examined the complex relationship between municipalities and universities in the contemporary political-economic setting. More specifically, we focused on this relationship in three Finnish cities (Vaasa, Jyväskylä and Oulu). The central idea of the project was to provide new scholarly insights on the local role of universities in a political context which highlights the importance of internationalization of both education and research.
